Reince Priebus was asked tonight if Sarah Palin is going to speak at the convention and said he can’t make that announcement tonight, but he hopes she does:

    I saw him speaking but I was more impressed with Nikki Haley, she is a super star as well as Sarah Palin.

    • marketcomp

      I knw I have much more respect for Nikki Haley than Priebus.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Actually this was my first time hearing her, and boy did she sound good, and what a contrast from Nikki to Pelosi. She was very impressive I really like her

        • Boris_Badenoff

          From everything I have heard she (Haley) talks the talk but does not walk the walk…

          • Amen to tht…

          • proudhispanicconservative

            Like I said dont know much about her, thanks for letting me know.

      • They are all the same…

    • IwjwI

      Sarah Palin endorsed Nikki Haley for a come from behind win.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        thanks for letting me know, She sounds very solid

        • IwjwI

          Yeah, Haley used Sarah and the TEAParty then hasn’t stood up to say one word to help defend them. Sarah defended Haley, like a Mama Grizzly defends her cubs, when all kinds of lies and slime were coming toward Haley.
          Haley turned her back on Sarah and the TEAParty as soon as she was declared the winner.
          Haley has been on the RINO wagon since day one of her win. Bet it stung just a bit that Sarah’s pick, Gingrich, won Haley’s state after Haley had endorsed Romney.

          • anyonebutbarry2012

            i was surprised haley stuck up for sarah tonight. covering her bases maybe, i do not know

            • Its election time and she trys to shed the GOPe cobwebs frm her hair… thts all…

          • sDee

            Tea Party elephants never forget!

          • Hit the nail on the head… Shes GOPe,all the way and sells her soul to the highest bidder… !

          • proudhispanicconservative

            Thanks for letting me know, that is the reason I join these pages so I can learn from my fellow conservatives, now I know that she is another rino.

        • She is not solid shes a four flush… !

      • tht was then ,this is Now… !

    • M_J_S

      Nikki Haley is a phoney. She endorsed Romney from the beginning of the primaries and claims to be a Tea Party Conservative from South Carolina? Ummmm, no.

      She’s the new class of RINO, kind of like the sequel to The Terminator-the liquid metal model that shapes her positions to the politics of the day. Along side her is the rhino RINO Christie and Marco Rubio.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Lets hope she is not another rino, maybe is because i didn’t know much about her but she sounded great.

        • sDee

          Hope is not needed – I just watch them with an open mind. MJS summarized Haley’s path since Palin and the Tea Party boosted her. I was a supporter of Rubio during his campaign. I do not live in Florida but he sounded right for the times in 2010. Now that I have seen his votes, alliances, his avoidance of his eligibility issue, his position on a “Dream Act” – it is pretty clear where the man’s allegiance lies.

          DC has got to be a dirty ugly shark tank for a freshman – everyone makes their choices but I will not remain loyal to elephants that choose the establishment.

        • Words with her nothing else…

      • Bobby two-bit Jindall also ,two peas in a pod… !

    • She talks a good talk but unfortuantly its just words with Her like the rest of them…

  • StrangernFiction

    McCain, Huckabee, and Rice?

    Yeah that Romney is a real severe conservative.

    Heads they win, tails we lose.

    • Etch is a Mass. Lib with an R in frnt of his name…

  • I hope she does… I’d like the Convention to show Republicans as United.. If Palin doesn’t speak, there most likely will be some rebellion, either at the Convention or a short distance away….

    • FreeManWalking

      Surely the GOPe has enough brains to do their best to unite and mend the split they have caused in the party.

      I didn’t think Romney could win, but I have somewhat changed my mind, Now I see it as his to loose.

      If they (GOPe) continue to disrespect and discount the TEA Party and True Conservatives it could dampen enthusiasm and have a negative effect on voter turnout.

      Cheney didn’t do enough with his comments trying to undo the damage he did saying she wasn’t qualified (what was he thinking?).
      I’m glad to see he is doing better, but that must have been a Democrat Heart they stuck in him.

    • more thn likely She will spk frm the Parking Lot unless ifin the texas Delegation puts her name in the Hat to git the ball rolling,thn its a whole new ball game… LOL

  • marketcomp

    This man will not even go on Mark Levin’s show for a radio interview and he gave them some stupid made-up story about not having time. This is shameful and very notice by those of us who a Mark Levin fans.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      You are absolutely right I am a Mark Levin fan listen to him every day and this guy doesnt have the guts to go to a place that is very conservative, but there is a lot of democrats that listen to Mark and he will be well served by going on the Levin show, and Romney too

      • marketcomp

        You know proudhispanicconservative, I think Romney is still holding a grudge for people who did not support him in the primaries. If you notice those on the list are all individuals who initially supported Romney and that’s OK. But, it also shows that if Romney is elected we, conservatives, will probably be ignored because we didn’t initially support him. In business competitors are viewed very differently but in politics being a bit more inclusive is essential and requires or demands maturing. I find it interesting that Romney has no problem going after independents but has a real problem with conservatives.

        • ” In business competitors are viewed very differently but in politics being a bit more inclusive is essential and requires or demands maturing.”

          Reagan exuded this attitude.
          Let’s hope Romney shows us wrong.
          But I think you may be right.

        • I still find it interesting that he had no problem attacking his fellow Republican candidates but not dear leader. Sure, he’s going after dear leader some now, but good grief, it took long enough. And way for mittens to show support for freedom of speech a la Chick Fil A…. oh, that’s right, he didn’t.

          • Bam!

          • marketcomp

            You know how those northeastern republicans including the Bushs feel about the homosexual community. I mean it was revealed in the debates that Romney actually supported legislation to give them the right to marry and he actually married them. So that, my friend, is really the reason we get the answer, “that’s really not apart of my campaign.” I know keeping Obama would be like committing suicide for our country but it also scares me that people like Romney, Chris Christie, Scott Brown, and Bushs, and others with that northeastern mentality or mindset will destroy our party by forcing this same-sex marriage stuff. You know I know some episcopal and when homosexuals were ordain as priest many left the episcopal church. I suspect that if these people push for this same-sex marriage crap then that will be the time to start a new party, the conservative party.

            • I agree marketcomp, but also just the issue of freedom of speech is the biggest part of this whole thing, that so many just don’t get- one would think that mittens could have at least addressed that, but nope. He’s got his marching orders just like the others, his talking points to stick to.
              I’m disgusted also that he nor any of the other rinos have stood up for Michelle Bachman now that she’s the blame for the sikh shooting. Not that I really expect them to, but it’d be nice to be pleasantly surprised from time to time. :-/

              • marketcomp

                Ditto, AmericanborninCanada. The CFA issue was about freedom of speech as well as anti-gay marriage or same-sex marriage or whatever they call it today. But the CFA CEO only supported his and our christian values and he has a right to say that. But for Romney to not support the 1st amendment says that we are going have a fight on our hands if he wins. But I would rather fight him than Obama, I think?

        • proudhispanicconservative

          Its sad, I was listening to the Mark Levin show and he has the same concerns, that they need us but we are going to be silenced I hope he is wrong, but all the indications is that he is right.

          • marketcomp

            I guess will see but the days of being quite or silenced are over. If Romney does something that is extra Constitutional we conservatives we now have twitter and Right Scoop where we didn’t have those outlets when GWB was President. But, I do think with the elections of Ted Cruz, Richard Murdoch and a few others along with the conservatives already there we will have support. I don’t think these people will not only be silenced but they will not just sit back and allow the RINOs including Romney to run rough shot over them.

            • proudhispanicconservative

              100% agree

      • M_J_S

        Exactly-where the hell is Romney??!

        He sure better not pick some Brooks Brothers tailor for VP.

      • Levin does not tell all,and it wldnt suprize me any if he could be in the know as to Sarah,s plans 4 the Conv… & Beyond…

  • Don

    If the RINOs don’t know it by now, without the Tea Party, the republicans ARE the third party. Snubbing Palin is something only a dumbass RINO would try to do, but even RINOs are not that stupid. RINOs need to remember being the lesser of two evils will only take you so far.

  • sjmom

    Don’t know how many speakers the GOP is planning but I researched and found out the four mentioned so far are Nikki Haley, Condoleeza Rice, Susanna Martinez and Mike Huckabee.

    IMO the VP will be a RINO, especially since Romney is connected with the Bushes. Take your pick. Oh, how I pray for a miracle because with the establishment running the show the next four years it will only be a little better than now but not much. At least, we may not have Marxism anymore.

    I will vote for Romney but only to get rid of Obama. Its a good thing we have touch screen voting machines where I live because I won’t have to bring a clothes pin; one hand to cast my vote leaves the other free to hold my nose.

    • white531

      sjmom, I know how you feel. At least I think I do. But we need to show unity right now. Liberals are monitoring these sites as we speak. This is an absolute army of people, trying to find out what our sentiments are so they can plan accordingly. I believe Romney will grow into the responsibility that is placed upon him. If you don’t believe that, it would be better to withhold comment. In my opinion.

      • sjmom

        Perhaps you should write to the Romney campaign and ask that the candidate unite behind us in our support of Chick Fil A because Mitt threw us under the bus with his comments. It was only recently I decided to give Romney my vote because it is a precious right and privilege and I would like to think the person I cast it for at least respects my views.

        • white531

          sjmom, it’s a dirty street fight at this point. Romney was not my first choice, either. But, I tend to go with reality, rather than dreams. We have to get rid of the Monkey. With our support, I believe Romney can do that. As for what kind of President he will be, I don’t really know. But he does have a few things in his favor. He understands business and knows how to make money. I believe he will be a good steward of the economy. Also, he’s a family man. Very close family, the Romneys. I guess what I am trying to tell you, is that we don’t have a table full of options at this point in the game. It’s either four more years of absolute disaster, or it’s Romney. I’m gonna go with Romney and pray a lot.

          • sjmom

            We’re agreed there. I will vote for Romney and pray a lot.

            • proudhispanicconservative

              and pray we will

          • proudhispanicconservative

            Right on the most important thing is to remove the head of the snake that Obama is. We all know and wished we had another real conservative but that is not the case. I can not emphasize this enough, the main goal is to remove Obama from office……..

  • If Palin gave a pep talk at a brewpub across the street from the convention, half the delegates would head for the exits.

  • Freempg

    How easily it’s been forgotten that this guy, should GOP rules have been enforceable law, could have been convicted of a crime for having supported Romney during the primary process.

    “Washington, DC, May 07, 2012 — Jeffrey Bales, a Member-at-Large of the Pima County GOP Executive Committee (Tucson, Arizona), says:

    ‘Due to violation of the RNC’s Rule #11, I call for Chairman Reince Priebus to resign immediately. It is un-American and beneath the standards established by the Republican Party to violate this rule. It is unethical to support a single Republican Presidential candidate (Mitt Romney) while other Republican candidates remain in the race.'”

    • IwjwI

      Have not forgotten. Every time I see him talking, that’s the first thing that comes to my mind. Likable, but part of the GOPe. Loyal only to themselves.

  • Maybe I missed something because I don’t watch FOX, or maybe it’s just me… but unless they “release” a better “wave” next go around, I will not be watching the convention. I mean really, John McLame? Condolezza Rice? why not Lindsay Graham, George w, Jeb, Dewhurst and Crist while you’re at it? The RNC doesn’t seem so big tent to the Tea Party now does it?

    • StrangernFiction

      We have a very evil individual leading a party of evil individuals who want to take our liberty and destroy the country we love, but you’d never suspect it listening to John McCain, Condi Rice, and Mike Huckabee.

      • They’re politicians who know how to speak great speeches , know what to say to get the masses attention and ovations, and grab our patriotic hearts… then, they do the exact opposite. I’m really tired of the same old, same old- but that’s what we get from having a 2 party system it seems. But then again, coming from Canada when they had 3 parties (might be more now, I don’t know) but things weren’t much different. The leaders are picked for us, and it was mittens’ turn.

    • We need ‘More Lindsay!” like in that famous “More Cowbell” skit on SNL.

      God help us.

  • Freempg

    Does Romney, the Harvard MBA, know the intangible value of “good will” on a balance sheet? Does he know that if he gives Sarah the keynote slot that he wins the presidency in a landslide? I doubt it.

    • virginiagentleman1

      Good evening my dear friend!
      With as much ‘ill will’ as the Romney campaign has spread throughout the primaries and now heading into the general, I’m not sure he knows what ‘good will’ is in any of its forms.
      If Palin speaks at the convention, be prepared for another Reagan moment, when the delegates realized they had confirmed the wrong candidate.
      Should Romney invite Sarah Palin as a speaker at all, she won’t speak until AFTER all votes are counted and there is no chance for an upset nomination of Palin or anyone else.

      However, something to keep in mind is that there is a revolt of the delegates in the planning stages, and I know you’ve heard the whisperings.
      This thing might yet get exciting, Free!

    Guy with a name like Reince Priebus – I’m guessing RINO.

    • Mary O’Grady

      I like his name actually…..very unique.

  • virginiagentleman1

    Seems as if the republican party, its leadership (oxymoron) and the RNC are going to throw the most boring convention party in its history!
    As CHRIS said down thread, if Palin gives a pep talk anywhere near the convention center, half of the delegates will leave to listen to her. The other half will be sound asleep in their seats from the boredom!

    Reince was quick to denounce Harry Reid as a ‘dirty liar’ on national tv, but when it comes to Sarah Palin, the grizzly has his tongue! It doesn’t seem likely that the RNC chairman would not know the list of all who will speaking at this late date. The convention opens in about 2 1/2 weeks!
    Mitt Milquetoast is the nominee, but Reince ‘Cycle’ Pribus is the host. Neither man knows the rest of the speakers names?

    Pribus says that he hopes Palin will be speaking but can’t make that announcement tonight. Well Reince, will you make it tomorrow, or the next day, or the next?
    If Palin isn’t a part of the festivities, I won’t be watching.

    Or, is it possible that Mitt has come to his senses and will offer the VP slot to Palin?
    Nah, he isn’t that smart as he has proven with his cold shoulder treatment of consevatives.

    Maybe Pribus knows something Mitt doesn’t? Possibly a revolt by delegates at the convention?

    Is it possible that someone other then Mitt will leave the convention as the nominee? Stranger things have happened.

    • Freempg

      VG, the RINO henchman John Sununu has been accorded the chairmanship of the “Committee on Rules and Order of Business” at the convention. He will attempt to crsh any opposition. His heavy hand against the Paulites could very well ignite a rebellion which could humilate the RINOs and infuriate conservative delegates to the point of rebellion.

      • virginiagentleman1

        Free, the ‘fix’ has been in since the start of the primary season. The repub party and the RNC openly supported Romney over all of the other contenders.
        I agree with your view on Sununu.
        All in all, we are witnessing republican politics at their very worst. For the party, it was ALWAYS going to be a Romney win.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s most bitter rival for his party’s nomination has agreed to speak at the nominating convention in Tampa, Florida, later this month.

    Rick Santorum, the former presidential candidate who lobbed harsh criticism at Romney during some bitter primary contests, will join a host of other big-name Republicans as headline speakers, according to Republican sources.

    Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will also speak at the convention, along with Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin and Tea Party hero and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky.

    Paul spent much of the year campaigning against Romney on behalf of his father, Texas Congressman Ron Paul.

    Details about when the speakers will take the stage have not been released.

    • I’ll listen when Rick speaks.

      • anyonebutbarry2012

        i don’t mind , fallon, rand, rick, kasich, martinez, haley i guess is alright she did stick up for sarah tonite. they got a ways to go still.

        if they give me, palin, west, i will be happy

      • marketcomp

        Ditto, A!

      • He earned it. So did Newt and few others. I’m glad Newt declined though. His major function was driving the debate on policy. You don’t do that at the convention.

        Rick would probably do a very good job of showing how conservatives can support the Romney campaign. So would Palin. Romney really does need that from them.

      • PhillyCon

        Me too. As K-Bob says he earned through his campaign and accumulation of delegates.

    • StrangernFiction

      Gee, I wonder how is it that Rand Paul got invited?

      • anyonebutbarry2012

        lol well……
        at some point we will see the final list, we know the gop is not conservative

    • Freempg

      Rick Santorum is and was a big government K-street RINO who appealed to the holier-than-thou evangelicals to advance his own career. I am sick of those that wear their faith on their sleeve as if a badge to indicate they are better than you and me. They are antithetical to our Lord’s admonition.

      Matthew 6:6

      “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

      • anyonebutbarry2012

        that can be off putting for some, i agree

      • I wear my faith on my sleeve.

        • Freempg

          You know what I mean.

      • “Rick Santorum is and was a big government K-street RINO”

        BS meter is pegged. This is such an overused, long-discredited “talking point” of the Perry/Romney/Newt camps that just dragging it out again is pathetic.

        Most former congressmen take jobs doing lobbying work. Doesn’t mean squat.

        • Freempg

          Discredited because you say so? They all do it so it must be OK? It’s the denial and hypocrisy which is at issue.

          “Santorum’s communications director recently told the Washington Post that “Rick Santorum fought to destroy the good old boy network in Washington.” As an electoral strategy, of course, it makes sense for the former Senator to present himself as a Washington outsider and a paragon of personal ethics. But such claims of moral rectitude strain credulity. Santorum made a career polishing DC’s corrupt revolving door—only to walk through it himself at the first opportunity.”


          • Discredited because it was DISCREDITED. Has jack to do with me.

            Your words on the “it must be OK” thing, not mine.

            But trying the moral equivalence BS is the province of the left.

            O0o0O0oO! He did some lobbying. Therefore = Massive Statist! Pant, pant, puff, puff!

            Moral relevance arguments are pathetic. Don’t go there.

    From his pause and body language I am beginning to think they are not going to invite Sarah to Speak.

    • anyonebutbarry2012

      You reap what you sow

      they invited mccain, so logically they be inviting sarah. i said logically she be invited because of 2008. if they don’t it will come back to bite them. jmo

    • ConnieConservative

      I hope you are wrong.
      Gov. Palin would really energize Tampa.

      • FreeManWalking

        Me too CC, Me too!

  • blackbird

    The Governor should invite DeMint, West, Scott Walker, Cain, Perry, Santorum, Paul, Bachmann, Huntsman, Gingrich, Brewer… to breakfast at her place down in Tampa.

    • virginiagentleman1

      My friend, you have an evil mind! I love your suggestion!
      What to guess who else will show up for breakfast with Palin and company? About 2/3 of the delegates will crash the breakfast party! lol.
      The space she’s renting at ChannelSide Mall is 9,000 square feet, so there’s plenty of room!

    • Maybe have a little “roundtable” discussion on live TV during the prime time speeches?

  • I love Sarah Palin. She excites and motivates the base. However, I think it’s time to not live with the politics of the past. Let’s give up and coming Republicans a chance to shine, we need new and fresh faces at our convention.

    • ernst1776

      What’s needed is a conservative dynamo…. Palin. She is the fresh face of conservatism.

    • anyonebutbarry2012

      we are getting those up and coming because of her endorsements, who does the gop endorse but more rino’s like them. sarah she does well on the endorsements, granted a few did not turn out, but she tries to get us conservatives. 2008 she ran with mc cain, he is speaking, i would think she would be also. she does much for the party.

    • Freempg

      Romney is the politics of the future? LOL! Most of the those so-called fresh faces owe their success to Sarah Palin.

      • Nikki Haley, Susana Martinez, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Kelly Ayotte, Scott Walker are the fresh faces I’m speaking of. I agree, John McCain is not someone whom I would have invited to speak at the convention, after all, he’s the one who gave us Obama with his lousy campaign. We need to give them a chance to shine. Chris Christie is great and I think deserves the key note speaking spot, he will for sure give a firey speech and motivate the base. We need Palin to clean up the Senate and House for us and bring in new regular faces, she’s great at what she’s doing now.

        • anyonebutbarry2012

          chris christie is a rino.

        • Freempg

          Nikki Haley, Susana Martinez, and Kelly Ayotte owe their success to Governor Palin. Chrispy Kreme is a loud-mouthed boor who bad-mouthed Sarah Palin at the first opportunity on Jimmy Fallon’s show and has announced his interest in the presidency in 2016. WTF?

          Sarah Palin was the ONLY Republican of stature to go into the bitter winter winds of Madison Wisconsin to support Scott Walker. She almost single-handedly brought the House under Republican control in 2010. Where was Mittens but hiding behind her skirts? If you think we will stand by and let the RINOs use Palin without respect and recognition yet hope to get our votes, you are sadly mistaken.

          • You are so right!

          • cathmom

            Oh my I didn’t hear that…..did Krispy Kreme really say he was considering a run for 2016? Gee what a loyal guy, that says so much about him. wow

        • Every time I see that phrase, “she should stick to what she’s doing” I have to laugh.

          When has any successful person needed to be told what to do?

        • fb274

          The names you listed (with the exception of Christi) would be UNKNOWN TO YOU if it were not for Gov. Sarah Palin. All Christi has going for him is 400 lbs of blubber and a mouth to match. Ruling by threats does not make one great—-look at obama! So Romney is now paying surrogates to shrill for him, just like obama?


      Seriously?….Palin is only 40 something and already she’s a has been?

      • In my opinion, I’d love for Palin to run for a U.S. Senate seat. I’d love to see her run for President later in the future.

    • StandProudNow

      Who would you like to shine?

    • How is she “politics of the past?” I mean, other than Obama’s stupid declarations about Republican policies.


    “It didn’t work out last time”…….pardon me Mr Priebus, after Palin’s speech McCain’s poll numbers went way up.
    It doesn’t matter “when” you have it, it’s the inspiration and the “fire” the base has once completed, and I think “last time” worked out really well.

    • But the dems won! Though Palin fired up the people it still wasn’t enough to WIN-and it is all about winning isn’t it? Getting close doesn’t count! Besides, Priebus was talking about being first or second in holding the convention he didn’t slight Palin like you suggest.

      • TENCOLE

        You know that if it wasn’t for Palin, McCain would have lost by a landslide. Conventions are to fire up the base, and in 2008 Palin certainly did that….am I wrong?

          And this convention we seem to be getting a lot of fire hoses….

        • It’s been pointed out to the anti-Palin folks about a million times, but they act like it’s never been said anywhere.

          • The 2008 Romney fans are the majority of those who stayed home back then. So it’s no wonder they’re upset at Palin. She almost won it despite McCain. Also, because of the media’s attacks, they’re relentless in blaming Palin as if the media won’t try and do the same thing to Romney.

      • Freempg

        The GOP did not win because they (rather the media) nominated the feckless RINO, the easiest of all to defeat John McCain. They have fallen all over themselves to repeat history by nominating the “bride groom on a wedding cake” Mittens Romney, Obama’s preferred opponent this time around.

      • Still beating the anti-Palin drum.

        Anyone with a quorum of neurons that actually connect knows McCain and his feckless team were the weak part of the ticket.

    • I’m pretty sure he was answering Greta’s question on the repub or dem convention going 1st and 2nd. Last yr repub’s went last that’s what he was talking about not working.

  • P.S.

    I don’t think it bothers Governor Palin that much by not speaking at this years convention. The question is, why does it bother you all so much ?

    • “Bother” is not the issue. It’s never been about how she “feels” about it. That’s liberal territory.

      It’s a matter of what is right.

    The Right Scoop has assured us that Sarah Palin will be speaking. ‘Nuff said.

  • Petition Mitt Romney: Draft Rep. Allen West for Vice President – Sign the Petition http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/petition-mitt-romney-draft-rep-allen-west-for-vice-pr.html Tell the GOP to go right or go home. We have had it with the lawyers and career politicians in Washington. We want a leader who knows what we are up against and that the enemy within is the Left, Communist and radical Islam. The truth is not always popular BUT it is always right. Please tell the GOP to stop pushing wishy washy republicans and ineligible people for VP.

  • A senior economist at Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, says it wasn’t Bushonomics or greedy bankers or broken markets that caused the Great Recession. In The Great Recession: Market Failure or Policy Failure, Hetzel pins the blame squarely on the Federal Reserve and Team Bernanke.

    The Tea Party is the ONLY reason James Carville’s book “40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation” has been relegated to the dust bin of history. RINO’s better recognize…

  • If Sarah speaks, there will be interest & excitement. If she doesn’t speak, there will be boredom & somnolence. The Republicans will make the choice & reach their comfort level.

  • Boris_Badenoff

    Wow , with all the great conservatives available to speak they come out with this lame assed line up? Other than Rand I wouldn’t walk a block to listen to any of these losers.

    The GOP is run by stupid old fools.. unbelievable ..

    • StrangernFiction

      And you know why Rand is there.

      • Boris_Badenoff

        I would have to assume so they can avoid having to ask his old man to speak…

  • Boris_Badenoff

    In typical fashion the GOP establishment is taking steps that will kill any positive voter momentum that exist, and that will be the ball game.

    They are their own worst enemies. Utter fools. Do they really believe they can win without the active enthusiastic support of conservatives? My God how stupid can they really be…

    Sarah should be asked to speak. She is popular in the party.

  • Patriot41

    I truly believe no matter where Sarah would be placed in the speaking rotation, she would be an absolute hit with the entire audience, I have never seen a Palin speech that was not accepted in this fashion. Should she be the keynote speaker? Absolutely, however we all know that is not about to happen for many reasons. Would she be the best received speaker? You can take it to the bank, so it does not matter what pecking order is designed.

    If the GOPe knows what is best for them and wants victory in November, they had best invite Gov. Palin to speak at the convention as she reflects everything that the GOP has stood for since it’s inception as a major political party.

  • cudaforever

    Sarah was the best thing they had 4 years ago and is still the best thing they got. They better come to grips with this quick or suffer the consequences.

  • poljunkie

    I feel they will announce Gov Palin, Col West and Ron Paul last to generate

    • DocBarry1

      Agreed – they will want to maximize the attention that a speaking role for Gov Palin will garner

      The interesting point to me will be the time slot.

      If it isn’t Prime Time – it will be upsetting – she deserves Respect,period.
